About the campaign
Let’s make this the last summer of unfair tourist chocolate sold in UK attractions.
UK Tourist attractions usually have a shop selling a souvenir chocolate bar with a picture or the name of the attraction on the wrapper. Back in 2014 not a single tourist souvenir bar on sale was made from certified Fairtrade chocolate.
In 2014 we made it possible for all tourist attractions to have high quality Fairtrade tourist souvenir bar produced. Attractions were invited to make the switch. Two years on only a handful of attractions have a fair tourist bar even though it costs the same as non-Fairtrade versions.
Venues including royal palaces, castles, museums, parks and zoos are not using the Fairtrade options available.
It’s time that the UK's top tourist attractions switched their souvenir chocolate to a certified Fairtrade blend. The Fair Tourism Bar Campaign will achieve this change - aiming to make this the last summer of unfair tourist chocolate sold in UK attractions. It can be done. Customers did something similar in the 1980s by putting pressure on supermarkets and convincing them to stock Fairtrade products or switch their own brands to Fairtrade.

|Why Fairtrade is best ?|
There are many claims made by companies that their chocolate is ethical. But unless it is Fairtrade you cannot be sure the farmers are getting a fair price.
